Last Wheel of Time came out yesterday...even though my brother bought it and I'll get it after him (though that could be a few weeks depending on when I see him next) I'm seriously considering buying it just to be able to read it NOW :P


is it the last, last book or has robert jordan's family decided yet if they want to also start work on the prequel series that robert had planned?


Ummm no idea actually...I haven't heard about that.

Harriet said that they don't plan on doing any sequels or prequels. The only other WoT related thing to be published is an encyclopaedia.

To answer the OP, I am of course reading A Memory of Light :P

Gonna start reading casual vacancy by J.K. Rollling (cbf trying to properly spell her name), and then the third book in the Jack Reacher series.

My relaxation method involves a bottle of lotion, beautiful women, and partial nudity. Yes I get massages.

Starting with Republic of Wine once I have free time. Given that its author won the Nobel last year, I expect it to deliver the goods.

Started Return to Mars by Ben Bova. So happy I discovered him... Mars was a great book, hopefully this one will be as good!

This, like many others. I'm trying not to finish it in a day like I usually do, because I need something to read between classes... It's much harder to put down than it should be :cry: .

Also got a kindle, which I used to read Brandon Sanderson's Warbreaker a week or so ago, as it's free and I can't really do anything else with it without registering a credit card. Can't be bothered to do that yet.

I have just finished reading revenge of the homecoming queen by stephanie hale.

I currently have two books on the go -

"And that's when it fell off in my hand" by Louise Rennison
Jenny Pox by JL Bryan.

I have about 30 books on my kindle that I havn't started reading yet, but I have quite a bit of traveling coming up so I'll use that time to get more reading in.

I just finished reading Pivot Point by Kasie West.

Posted Image

It's one of the most incredible and carefully crafted books I've ever read. The main character, Addie, is able to "Search" into her future and examine two different paths. Basically when she is presented with a choice, she can look at the outcome of each of the two different options and see exactly how they will play out. So when her parents decide to get a divorce, she Searches into her future so she can decide which parent she should live with.

The way the two different paths intertwine is just amazing and genius. The end had a bit of a Heroes vibe to it as well. I freaking loved this book!!

Currently reading Through a Window: My Thirty Years with the Chimpanzees of Gombe by Jane Goodall.

Such an interesting book, I'm about halfway through it at this point. It's a follow-up to her book In the Shadow of Man, but Barnes & Noble didn't have a copy so I have to order it and couldn't wait to read this one.

That's number one on my reading list right now, followed by The Giver. I'm basically just picking random books from Wikipedia's list of dystopian literature.

While not normally a huge fan of most dystopia, the Giver is quite excellent in my opinion. I remember my mother reading that one to me when I was little (that would have been around when I was 10 though), and the fact I can actually remember most of the book as read to me by her counts as high praise. It's one of only a small handful I remember in so much detail.

If you like it, there are apparently 3 more books (the fourth came out last year, just finding out about it now). I've read the next one, Gather Blue a few times, and it is easily my favourite of the three I read, and I think I need to read Messenger (#3) again, as I've forgotten too much of it now. Once I'm back up to speed, I need to read Son.


And speaking of books that were read to me that I really enjoyed, the Dark is Rising series (fantasy) is one of my two favourite series from childhood, along with the Shadow Children series (dystopian). My all time favourite series though has to go to The Belgariad and the continuation of the series in the Mallorean. And maybe someday I'll find out how to correctly pronounce words such as Ctuchik (eventually I just started dropping the C for all the words like that, except for Cthol which I pronounce as see-thoul), and Sthiss, the pronunciation of which I think I actually have worked out, but which cannot possibly be conveyed with the English alphabet due to a lack of letters describing snake sounds. Imagine trying to hiss while saying "thiss" (as in "three".)

I'm a huge fan of dystopian stories.
I would suggest that you read We by Zamyatin. It was written well before 1984 and Brave new world, and some people think those books took elements from it.
Also, pretty much anything by Margaret Atwood is good. I really liked The handmaids tale.
The Long Walk and The Running Man by Stephen King are pretty good.
A quick, easy read is Feed by M.T. Anderson.
And a really good anthology is "Brave New Worlds".


As for the Giver, I have a question for the people who have read it. Spoilers of the end of the book.
